The string of Reebok Insta Pump Fury collaborations within the Reebok Certified Network continues as we get an exclusive, official look at this masterpiece by U.S. shop Sneaker Politics. Drawing inspiration from the traditions and tales of the local scene is a method employed by many a sneaker boutique in past partnerships, but Politics has a sure upper hand – it’s located in one of the most folklore-rich areas in the world. The “Rougarou”, the focus of this upcoming sneaker,  is a common legend throughout Louisiana, particularly in areas with a French origin; the story of this werewolf-like beast is that will hunt down and kill Catholics who don’t abide by the rules of Lent, while others believe the Rougarou to be more of a protector by doing away with only those with ill intent.

This  spook story of the Rougarou is one that has been passed down through generations in the state’s prolific Cajun communities, areas that Sneaker Politics’ three locations call home. As the Politics crew recalls from these tales told to them as children, the design, which is half-werewolf and half-Swamp Thing, captures the feral appeal of the creature thanks to the brown pony hair upper and macabre mix of black, dark green, and sultry red. The timing of the release comes right in the middle of the Lent – April 11th at Sneaker Politics and April 12th at Reebok Certified Network retailers – and will be available in a wide range of sizes for $170. Continue on for a detailed gallery at the Sneaker Politics x Reebok Insta Pump Fury “Rougarou”, and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more exclusives and updates.
